Course number : LIR210   ID : 23796    Section Number : 1
« back to classes page

Considered one of the most distinguished and beautiful burial grounds in the country, Mount Olivet serves as home to thousands of patriots who bravely served their country under the same flag so proudly hailed in 1814 by fellow cemetery resident and Frederick native, Francis Scott Key. Here, one can find veterans connected to every conflict our country has been involved in. Emmy–award winning documentarian and Mount Olivet historian Chris Haugh will give participants a rare view of the lives and achievements of some of these men and women through a leisurely walking tour. Of those reposing in Mount Olivet, some veterans died in military combat, while others succumbed to wounds and sickness acquired while in military service. Thankfully, the vast majority of armed forces personnel came back home from the battlefields and lived out full lives dedicated to family and professional pursuits. Most returned with a renewed understanding that "freedom is not necessarily free," as the greatest sacrifices have been made by our soldiers and sailors throughout our country's vast military history. Bring your walking shoes as we plan to cover a few miles through the winding roads and lanes of Frederick’s historic, garden cemetery. We will meet at the Key Memorial Chapel just beyond the Francis Scott Key Memorial. There is ample parking in the circle drive around the chapel as students can park here. Rain Date - June 16
